[Philippines] Benzoyl Peroxide products in our country

9 posts in this topic

I have been using Panoxyl for a week now and it seems there is no improvement because my blackheads is still the same as it used to be, so I want to know what other BP products can help me remove my blackheads.

btw, Could Tea Tree Oil be a good agent in removing acne because I am also using the Extract Cleanser w/ tea tree oil, but to no avail. Should I use the soap type of tea tree oil?

Hi :) I'm from the Philippines too and I'm also using Panoxyl. I started only yesterday so I have yet to see if it will work for me. I guess you should be a little more patient, after all you've only been on the regimen for a week. Just stick religiously to the regimen and forget about the tea tree oil first. I've actually tried tea tree oil before, I used plain tea tree oil from Body Shop. It helped calm down my pimples but it didn't really get rid of them. I don't trust the local products with tea tree oil that you can buy in the grocery, I feel it's already diluted with so many other chemicals.

Try mo na lang muna yung regimen with panoxyl, syempre di talaga ganun kabilis yung results kahit naman sa ibang mga regimen. Just be patient, I myself don't expect much from the first couple of weeks or even months but I'm hoping for the best :shifty:

Be a little bit patient with your regimen. Besides, you've just used it for a week now. There's no skin care product that makes your pimple go away immediately. The key to resolving skin care issues is being consistent with the products you are using. I mean, ALWAYS follow your skin care routine. Furthermore, it takes time for your skin to adjust to the product especially if this is your first time to use it so you really have to be patient.

Regarding the tea tree oil, i like the one from Zen Zest. I've been using it for about 2 months now and it has helped me calm/eliminate my zits. I dunno, it just worked for me. I'm working in a call center for 8 months now and during my first few months, zits started to appear everywhere. Sobrang hassle. Nirecommend lang ng friend ko yun tea tree kasi it helps avoid acne scarring. Ayun. It worked for me. Basta pag nararamdaman ko na magkakapimple ako, nilalagyan ko na agad nun tea tree oil then the next morning, it's either wala na or hindi xa magpoprogress into something cystic. Basta very minimal lang. And what i like most about this product is hindi xa nagstain or nagbebleach ng mga pillow covers ko unlike the benzoyl peroxide. I'm not saying na hindi xa effective but nakakainis lang yung bleaching effect dun sa pillow cover ko. =(

Anyway, just an advice, make sure you freshen up your face everytime na malagkit/oily na yung feeling. In my case, I just freshen up with water only kasi washing your face with cleanser may cause ur face to be more oily or it may dry up your skin naman so water lang ako.

Backup-an mo pa yan ng vitamins para meron din tumutulong sa skin mo internally. Look for supplements na may vitamin A, B complex, zinc at selenium. Yan ang mga acne buster vitamins. I've learned from other forum na ok raw yung Conzace Vitamins. Haven't tried that though but siguro try ko xa soon. Anyway, ngayon summer, keep your skin refreshed palagi. Don't let it be oily/malagkit. Then wash your face every day with a mild cleanser or mas ok if you're gonna use one system/one brand lang for your skin kasi what it does is kino-complement ng isang product yung iba pang products na kasama dun sa system. Ayun.

BTW, wag papalit palit ng product every week. Let your skin adjust to the product first. Plus, be a very keen consumer. Never ever buy a product na puro promises. I mean kung sa tingin mo e too good to be true, then most probably ganun nga so wag mo na bilhin. At pinaka-number ONE advice, be patient lang tlg. Ayun.
